Here's the video:The headliner of Bratt's story is how Prey 2 was going to handle the act of dying and respawning.

This week’s highs and lows in PC gaming

The highsAndy Kelly: Wild open spacesAfter watching the trailer for Far Cry 5 and reading our first look , I am officially a bit excited. The outposts in the last few Far Cry games have been some of the most fun I’ve had in a PC shooter. Far Cry has always been a virtual photographer’s dream, and the brief glimpses we’ve had of the new setting so far hint at some pretty glorious scenery waiting to be snapped. A lot of major game series are being shelved or killed off lately, so I’m glad to see F

Golf Story looks like the Mario Golf/Stardew Valley mash-up I need right now

If you grew up on Nintendo handhelds in the '90s, you probably remember Camelot's unsung Game Boy Color adaptation of Mario Golf. It was more than just a golf game. Enter Golf Story, a golfing adventure from a small team called Sidebar Games, and it looks like everything I've ever wanted. Between this and Stardew Valley hitting Nintendo Switch soon, I'm going to be up to my eyeballs in retro-inspired updates to my favorite classic games. If all goes well, Golf Story should arrive on Nintendo Swi

Day9 may have just played the most ridiculous game of Hearthstone ever

"Oh my god, I'm going to vomit blood," proclaimed streamer Sean "Day9" Plott nearly 25 minutes into a game of Hearthstone that had already gone to fatigue five minutes ago. The game, which you can watch in its entirety above, is one of the most ridiculous examples of a Hearthstone match I've ever seen. It's a full 30 minutes long, but well worth watching the slow build of absolute RNG clusterfuckery. I don't want to spoil too much more, because it's really worth watching to see Plott navigate th
